Watercolor Rainbow Sketch

Yay, a card for Freshly Made Sketches!  When I saw this sketch by Karren Johnson, my wheels started turning.  I have PTI's new "Blue Skies," and had to put it to use with some other stamp sets that needed sunlight to shine upon them.  They've been tucked away for the majority of the time since before Christmas!

Here is Karren's sketch...


And my card...


Nothing like stamping a rainbow to put you in a good mood!  I stamped it using PTI's "Watercolor Wonder", then added a sunshine and raindrops from Lawn Fawn's "Hello Sunshine" set.


The clouds and sentiment are from "Blue Skies."  I heat embossed the clouds with white powder on die cut vellum.  Also, the white cardstock for the base and border strip were "jazzed up" by embossing them with the Canvas side of PTI's "Linen and Canvas" Impression Plate.

See what 40-45 degree days do to my psyche?  Hope it's sunny near you!  Thanks for stopping by today :)
